Sunshine 2


We all need a little sunshine during these cold and deary winter days.  So I made this card for my friend for her birthday last weekend.  It is colored with Copic markers and has an edge punch along the side.I added ribbon and a greeting and it was a quick and easy card.

Here is a close up of the image.  I was not real happy with the card stock I used since it did not it was in my scrapes so it was used. 

And I do have a confession on this card ..... there is a major mistake .... but I think I disguised it very well.   I was going along the edge with a marker and it slipped and make an ugly mark along the edge.  So I intentionally did it in a few key places.  Then I used the Colorless Blender to lighten it and spread it.   To be truthful it ended up having a distressed look around the edges and I liked it!  So mistakes can be a blessing in our lives too .... use your creativity today to make something that you are not happy with into a blessing.
